1 O come, let us asing for joy to the Lord,

Let us shout joyfully to bthe rock of our salvation.

2 Let us acome before His presence bwith 1thanksgiving,

Let us shout joyfully to Him cwith 2psalms.

3 For the Lord is a agreat God

And a great King babove all gods,

4 In whose hand are the adepths of the earth,

The peaks of the mountains are His also.

5 1The sea is His, for it was He awho made it,

And His hands formed the dry land.

6 Come, let us aworship and bow down,

Let us bkneel before the Lord our cMaker.

7 For He is our God,

And awe are the people of His 1bpasture and the sheep of His hand.

cToday, 2if you would hear His voice,

8 Do not harden your hearts, as at 1aMeribah,

As in the day of 2bMassah in the wilderness,

9 “When your fathers atested Me,

They tried Me, though they had seen My work.

10 “For aforty years I loathed that generation,

And said they are a people who err in their heart,

And they do not know My ways.

11 “Therefore I aswore in My anger,

Truly they shall not enter into My brest.”
